    I worked DP0GVN last week, and if they confirm, will this show up as Antarctica or Europe? Its a German station in Antarctica?

    Trying to get Worked All Continents for QRZ--but Africa is going to be very difficult for me here. But I don't see an option for Antarctica as a continent.

    Well it sure won't count as Antarctica for WAC.

    Since Antarctica is not populated except for scientific stations, it is not included as a continent in WAC awards.

    I've always felt Antarctica should be counted. The fact that there are only hams at 'scientific stations' shouldn't matter. They count for DXCC!

    WAC is an IARU-issued award according to its long-standing rules.

    Does the German Antarctica station count as Europe for QRZ?

    Should count as Antarctica. I have DP1POL confirmed as Antarctica in QRZ.

    QRZ doesn't count Antarctica as a continent. See above.

    I have it listed, and confirmed, as Antactica in QRZ.COM. I was not discussing continents. The same apply to all other Antarctica stations, regardless of the 'mother' country.

    But you may say: I asked about it in the context of continental Europe. Fair enough, and I apologize for getting involved. I should have factored that in before replying.
